Daylight Saving Time 2019: When and Why We Spring Forward

Daylight Saving Time 2019: When and Why We Spring Forward

Daylight saving time springs forward this Sunday, but the future of this time switcharoo in California is uncertain.

The beginning of daylight saving time means more than just losing an hour of sleep for you Sunday morning.

"Daylight Saving Time was first implemented in Canada more than 100 years ago as a way to conserve energy", explains the Crown Corporation.

The annual ritual in which we "gain" an hour of evening light by pushing the clocks forward may seem like a harmless shift.

We are also expecting a warm up this weekend.

One study said an irregular sleep pattern, even just one hour, can lead to higher risks for heart disease, being overweight, high blood pressure and diabetes.

On the other hand, that same study found the risk fell about as much in the fall, when clocks were turned back. For tips on how to prepare for daylight saving time, refer to this information from the National Institute of Standard and Technology's time and frequency division.

Yes, the time change can be especially hard on a child's sleep habits.

Indian Wells: Novak Djokovic greets legend Pete Sampras after win
Analyzing one of his most complicated matches against Fernando Verdasco, Federer added: "It was very tricky". Speaking ahead of the match, Nadal said he was refusing to be downbeat about his performances this year.

John Scott of Scotiabell has been resetting mechanical, tower clocks across the city since the fall of 2006 when he changed the time at Old City Hall.

For a few days before the clocks move ahead, begin to adjust the timing of other daily routines that are "time cues" for your body. People also report feeling disoriented and unproductive. A 2008 report by the Independent Institute estimated that the annual US "opportunity cost" of changing clocks could be as high as $1.7 billion.

Not everyone in the U.S. follows it either.

State lawmakers in ME are considering a similar change, as well as possibly moving the state to the Atlantic Time Zone.

Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington, and Idaho are all angling to do the same, with proposed legislation in the works.

After Indiana adopted daylight saving time statewide in 2006, researchers examined power usage statistics and found that electricity consumption there rose 1% overall, with a 2% to 4% increase in the fall months.

Meanwhile, the tradition inevitably costs some people their lives.
